Idyllwild, Part II

Sometimes I catch myself thinking: “This is like one of those places people go to for vacation!”

The friends are great, the rides are plentiful… and we have more trails than we know what to do with. The livin’ is a little slower, which is a good thing.

Lately, I’ve been doing some exploring with my peeps- we’re planning a Self-Supported Enduro in the area. For now, we can share this much: it’ll be long, with a lot of climbing, and very rewarding, with post-ride activities. More to come on that, I promise. 🙂

Here’s some of what we’ve come up with:

I still can’t keep up with Mary very well. She’s been doing some exploring of her own, too.

Dave tested this natural spring & gives the thumbs-up. (he does this stuff for a living) The enduro will likely pass by this spot.

Nick has been helpful with his knowledge of the eastern end of the valley… and his willingness to hike-a-bike for 5 hours.

Some Garner Valley doubletrack. They filmed Bonanza here.
